The volcanic eruption by Fagradalsfjall mountain, Southwest Iceland, never ceases to fascinate. It has caught the attention of people all over the world.

Mbl.is’ webcams follow the eruption continuously, day and night, allowing you to keep an eye on it, no matter where in the world you are.

The five-minute-long panorama time-lapse video below gives you a chance to watch developments at the eruption site over a 24-hour period, starting at midnight, Friday night, a week ago, and continuing until 11:59 pm Saturday night.

Not only does the video provide a 220° view of the eruption and the bright red lava flow, but it clearly shows, too, how bright the nights are in summer and how beautiful the light is.
